Our Expat Tax Planning Process.
  • Schedule an Appointment

    Our CPAs can't help you if you don't consult them in the first place. One appointment is all it takes to get started with all of this.

  • Let Our CPAs Define Your Business Strategy

    CPAs can help you specify your business strategy if you're having trouble articulating one, but they can also add finesse to a general plan you've already formulated to some degree.

  • Identify Strengths and Weaknesses in the Current Organizational Structure

    When you know the pros and cons of your current setup, then you can emphasize playing to your benefits while mitigating the downsides present.

  • Consider Your Options and Design a New Structure

    Contrast and comparison between your new options should eventually make the ideal path forward obvious, even if by process of elimination. Then, you can decide on your specific steps to advance into the future.

  • Launch Your Company Restructure and Adjust as Necessary

    A restructuring might not be implemented as precisely as you plan it out. See how things go, and then make adjustments as you need to in order to keep things on course.

Business Restructuring FAQs

  • When Should a Company Restructure?

    Knowing when to restructure a company can be tricky, but there are several common triggers that warrant such a move. Poor earnings performance, deteriorating financial fundamentals, lackluster sales revenue, and excessive levels of debt might all prove to be inspirations. Lack of competitive power and facing overwhelming industry competition can also matter.

  • How Long Does a Company Restructure Take?

    Without preparation, a restructuring process might take as many as five full calendar years. If it needs to be done within a year, consider setting quarterly tasks, such as research, choices, implementation, and review. Lewis CPA can make the process go faster and take a lot of the stress out of it for you, too.

Susan Lewis and her staff have been doing my taxes for over 17 years ever since I opened my own business. You can always count on a friendly, fast, and courteous response when it's needed. I wouldn't use anyone else and I've referred them to others who have been happy with their service as well.

Sue has been a great resource for my personal, small business tax needs.  She helped me launch 2 S corps, and sort out the mess that was my personal return.  Every step of the way she has been there with great advice and helped guide me to properly record transactions.  I would highly recommend her.
